I am looking to try one or more software applications on a few spare "bad" hard drives. These are drives with a growing number of bad sectors. CrystalDiskInfo marked the hard drive "yellow". What have people tried and worked well? I looked at Spinrite's website. Sounds impressive.

Thanks, but I am looking for something that recovers data from hard drives that are failing. GetDataBack looks mainly for files deleted in error, or a format in error, etc. Other suggestions?

Thanks for the replies so far. I may start trying some of the software with my growing collection of bad hard drives.

Hi there donald73d'

Maybe u have fluctuating electricity in the house and should get some protection like,

CyberPower Intelligent LCD Series GreenPower UPS 1000VA 600 Watt 5 x 5-15R Battery/Surge protection.

It keeps the electricity stable and if your HDD is writing and power goes haywire, this will save your hardware.

Everybody should have at least $20 surge protector.
